With out your screening, we would have never known about this condition...

Good Morning,

I want to sincerely THANK YOU for the screenings that you do.  My daughter is a dancer and a freshmen in High School and was seen at the Eastview screening this past fall. She had an abnormal Echocardiogram.  After the event, we followed up with pediatric cardiologist and it was confirmed that she has an Aortic Bicuspid Valve.

Learning that this is a hereditary disease, we are currently  in the process of getting the whole family screened.  We have learned about the precautions she should take,  ongoing screenings that she will need annually and specifically as a female, having children when she gets older, she will need to have a few more screenings to ensure her heart can support another life.

With out your screening, we would have never known about this condition and it may have saved her life and the lives of current and future family members.

For that, we are eternally grateful for you and your family, your mission to provide free screenings and for the beautiful way that you are honoring your son, Patrick.

Forever grateful!
